LAUSANNE, Switzerland and NEWARK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct 5, 2022–
Today, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced Logitech Sight, an AI-powered tabletop camera that works with the front-facing Rally Bar or Rally Bar Mini camera to intelligently capture the best perspective of attendees at the meeting and follow conversations as they move through the conference room. In today’s hybrid work landscape, in which 43% of remote employees say they don’t feel included,* Logitech Sight helps solve the disparity between hybrid teams by giving remote workers an “at the table” experience when they meet colleagues in the office.

“We are no longer all at home in equally sized video boxes like we were at the height of the pandemic. In a hybrid work world, a mix of in-office and remote workers increases the challenge of providing equitable experiences for everyone,” said Scott Wharton, general manager of Logitech Video Collaboration. “Logitech Sight, when used with Rally Bar or Rally Bar Mini, uses AI to solve this problem with a model that is less Silicon Valley and more Hollywood – the art of using multiple camera angles and direction smart way to get remote participants off the sidelines and into the room. Our customers have told us that this is one of the biggest hybrid work pain points they need to solve to make “return to the office” work. better for teams.We believe, based on years of research and early customer feedback, that we have cracked the code to this unavoidable critical issue for organizations of all sizes.
Logitech Sight is the latest in a series of innovations designed to level the playing field for all workers, whether they choose to collaborate from the office, home, or anywhere in between. This is the New Work Logic: designing technological solutions for everyone in every space.
As an AI-powered camera, Logitech Sight offers alternative perspectives, extending audio and video into larger rooms, to the Rally Bar or Rally Bar Mini camera at the front of the room. With two 4K cameras and seven beamforming microphones, Sight captures conversations and non-verbals as they naturally occur. This ultimately improves employee attendance and engagement by helping remote attendees feel like they’re actually sitting at the table. Later after launch, Sight will enable RightSight with Smart Switching, an adaptive intelligence that selects the best view between tabletop camera and front camera, intuitively switching between camera views of in-person interactions and naturally following conversations.
By integrating with leading video conferencing platforms like Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Google Meet, Sight makes it easy to use hybrid meeting layout features like Zoom Smart Gallery and Microsoft Teams Dynamic View. Compatibility with popular platforms also gives IT teams confidence that their smart room technology will continue to meet the changing needs of their hybrid workforce.
Logitech Sight is easy to install with included brackets and built-in cable management, an essential feature for IT teams who need to outfit collaboration spaces in a flexible and scalable way. Management is simple with Logitech Sync, free software that enables device monitoring, updating, and troubleshooting from a cloud-based interface. Logitech Sight is backward compatible with Rally Bar and Rally Bar Mini, so IT teams can confidently deploy this new technology with their existing video bars.
Sight not only enhances RightSight 2 Speaker View, but works with Scribe, Rally Bar and Rally Bar Mini to help solve one of today’s most pressing challenges in the hybrid workplace: making meetings fairer for all.
